Customer Notice - Reminder Phase Out SR-100 Units

January 23, 2013

Many customers have now replaced SR-100s with the new CSE SRLD in advance of the December 31, 2013 phase-out deadline established by MSHA and NIOSH. CSE employees are working to ensure miners are fully protected with the technologically advanced SRLD, as well as to minimize the impact on our customers' operations.

We are fully prepared to meet our customers' needs for self-contained self-rescuers. In addition, we offer complete training support through our new CSE Training Services program, as well as assisting in the disposal of SR-100s.

We are pleased to have provided support on this phase out, and we will continue to do so in order to ease this transition for our customers. We encourage customers to avoid waiting to address the replacement mandate. We are prepared to assist and we have ensured our production capacity will meet anticipated demand.

As safety for our customers is CSE's top priority, we have dedicated our resources to solve any concerns during this final transitionary period.

For your convenience, please see the upcoming phase-out deadlines listed below.


April 26, 2013:

  1. SCSRs for miners who wear/carry SR-100s and do not have a fixed work location, and along travel routes used by these miners.
  2. SCSRs for miners who wear/carry SR-100s and have fixed work locations, and SCSRs stored on mantrips.

December 31, 2013:

  1. Finish phase-out of SR-100s. No SR-100s should remain in any mine.

If customers have specific questions about scheduling delivery and/or training of the SRLD, or pick up and disposal of SR-100s, we encourage you to reach out to your sales manager immediately. To reach your sales manager, please call 800-245-2224
